2020 Fuel Economy Guide

By law, dealers must provide the guide to customers upon request

The U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency have just released the 2020 Fuel Economy Guide. The guide provides detailed fuel economy estimates for model year 2020 light-duty vehicles, along with estimated annual fuel costs and other information for prospective purchasers. By law, dealers must display the guide and provide copies to customers upon request. Dealers can print copies to have on hand or provide access to the electronic version on a computer or electronic device in the new-vehicle display area.

2020 Fuel Economy Guide

The 2020 Fuel Economy Guide will be published in an electronic (paperless) format only and will be updated periodically to include newly released vehicle models and current fuel cost estimates. On the government’s fuel economy website you can:  

  • Download and print copies of the 2020 guide as needed.  
  • Subscribe to an email list to be notified about the new fuel economy guide each year. 
  • Download and print a sign alerting customers to the guide. (Displaying the sign is optional and not required by law.)

An EPA/DOE letter for dealers details how to make the guide available to customers.
